Health and Safety

A ‘Customer First’ and ‘Safety First’ culture is ingrained throughout our business and our aim is to set industry standards when it comes to being innovative, adding value, providing excellent customer service and ensuring Health and Safety at all times.

Health & Safety is of paramount importance at Live. All of the products we supply are maintained and serviced in accordance with our Health & Safety Policy. In addition, our staff receive stringent training on an ongoing basis and we have introduced a number of initiatives to enhance safety across all of the sectors we operate in and ultimately assist with the reduction of accidents on sites.

Live holds accreditation to BSI ISO 20121:2012 for Event Sustainable Management. As the leading provider of temporary roadways, bridges, barriers and ground cover, Live incorporates sustainability of the environment as an integral part of business activity with all products designed for re-use. This supports the client focus and pro-active ethical strategy of Live involving all our events and activities.

Live is a division of A-Plant, the first national rental company in Europe to have achieved dual certification to both the ISO 14001:2004 standard and OHSAS 18001:2007 specification covering Health and Safety and Environmental procedures. This is a major benefit to Live customers who also hire from A-Plant on their projects.

By having its integrated Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) risk management systems independently assessed by the BSI and approved for IS0 14001 and OHSAS 18001 accreditation, A-Plant customers can have complete confidence that A-Plant is a supplier that can offer approved management of Environmental and Health and Safety risks in every aspect of their business.

RoSPA Gold Winners

A-Plant is a seven-time winner of the RoSPA Gold Award for Occupational Health and Safety. The awards from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) recognise continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention at work. In order to be considered for an award, A-Plant’s overarching occupational health and safety management systems were put under rigorous scrutiny by RoSPA, which means that customers can rest assured that A-Plant is well and truly setting the safety standard.

Work Safe Home Safe

At Live and A-Plant we believe safety is not just related to the equipment we use; it’s about taking personal responsibility for how we work. Safety should always be our number one priority, no matter what role we do or what job title we have, if we all work safe, we all go home safe.

To help promote this message across all of A-Plant’s Divisions we endorse a Work Safe Home Safe message with five golden rules to follow:

  1. Before you start work, be aware of any potential risks
  2. Stop work if it can’t be done safely
  3. If safe to do so, intervene if the actions of others might be unsafe - don`t walk by
  4. Maintain a safe, clean and tidy working environment
  5. Always wear the appropriate PPE
